Philadelphia has reached agreement with Houston assistant GM Sam Hinkie to be the 76ers new GM, league source tells Y! Sports.
A Daryl Morey disciple? Not PJax, but I'm geeked! Anybody know anything about this guy?
"Prior to joining the Rockets, Hinkie advised two NFL teams on draft strategies and ways to use statistical analysis to improve decision making. Hinkie also has experience as a consultant for Bain & Company, a leading global-strategy consulting firm. In addition, he worked in private equity and venture capital where he led diligence teams and provided strategic direction for his firm’s investment companies.
Hinkie graduated from the University of Oklahoma and was named one of the top-60 undergraduate students in the country by USA Today. He also holds an MBA from Stanford, graduating with highest honors as an Arjay Miller Scholar."
Wow a draft advisor for two NFL teams whose huge into analytics. Can't wait for the draft now!
